Kind soul, great spirit indeed!

From Wiki;

"As the festival's first performer, he held the crowd for nearly three hours (in part because he was told to perform a lengthy set because many artists were delayed in reaching the festival location), and he was called back for several encores. Having run out of tunes, he improvised a song based on the old spiritual "Motherless Child" that became "Freedom". The subsequent Woodstock movie release helped Havens reach a worldwide audience."

This is all true ,but when he did "make it" commercially he sang background on an AMTRACK commercial. When asked about it I think he was so embarrased that he denied it saying that someone else impersonated his voice being one of the first counter culture guys. I thought this was really funny because clearly he has a voice like no other and was embarassed that he was making cash from the the man.I said all power to ya Richie make it any way you can.

This could be respectfully played at many/any funerals.
